Summary - 2019 Edition

The unit is subdivided into six learning hours spread across six lessons, plus a test, in order to fit with most school timetables. The test is provided with exam-style questions to assess understanding across all lessons in the unit. It is a theoretical unit covering the relevant sections of the Cambridge IGCSE® Computer Science specification 0478 / 0984 and the O Level 2210 specification. 

This Unit builds on the fundamentals covered in the PG Online KS3 unit on Understanding Computers, (although understanding of this unit is not required), and then extends this knowledge to a level sufficient for examination purposes. The unit starts with two lessons on logic diagrams, logic statements and truth tables. In the next three lessons, students learn about the CPU and the many forms of memory available in modern computers including RAM and ROM. Secondary storage and their uses are covered.

What people say...

I have just ordered two extra units as the resources that we purchased from you in April are brilliant and the kids love using them.

Katherine Hobbs. Head of Digital Technology, Petersfield School

PG Online resources are very well planned and easy to use. Inspection copies are also useful as this enables me to make better choices with our limited budgets.
